BMW of North America is recalling 18,054 vehicles in the 2014 and 2015 model years because potential fuel pump failure can lead to unexpected stalling.

To resolve the problem, dealers will replace the fuel pump. There will be no charge for this service, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
